In April I was diagnosed with ADD and have been on 30 mg. Adderall XR for six months. Once I felt it was losing its effectiveness, my doctor put me on 75 mg. Vyvanse. The first two days it did seem to work a little longer, but after that, it didn't seem to work at all. I found myself not being able to focus and projects piled up. I also started this weird obsessive quirk of pulling the hair on ... Show Full Comment

Smaller pill than Adderall XR 30mg, also less expensive with my insurance (BCBS PPO). No "jolt" of energy/creativity after an hour of taking it like the Adderall; it's a more gradual increase in energy. I'm on my third day so we'll see how it goes. :)

I was taking the short acting adderall three times a day and it was working fine. I decided to try vyvanse to have the choice of only taking 1 pill instead of 3.

I just started on Vyvanse. I like that way it helps me stay focused at work. I was on Ritialin (sp) as a child and it was hard taking two pills a day. I am 30 years old and was just put back on ADHD meds. I havn't had to take meds for this for about 10 years. I don't like the way it makes me feel in the morning, but overall I think it is a great medicine.
